Can a vampire get totally ripped by working out, if they weren't ripped before?

LarsLars Registered User regular
The vampire. One of the most iconic horror monsters. Immortal bloodsuckers. Superhuman strength and an intense proclivity to totally ham it up.

But can they get shredded? Will working out increase their muscle mass?

Given infinite time, can they pull a Christian Bale?

Or should they make sure to get their workout in before accepting the eternal contract of the blood kiss?

    Blood is a high protein low carb food, that's why vampires are shredded.

    Vampires are undead, I don't think their bodies work the same way anymore, but shape-shifting magic renders the question moot

    What if vampires can't actually ambulate at all, they can just shapeshift from being a guy standing upright into a guy with one leg raised, and then shapeshift from that into a guy with one foot in front of the other

    Looks the same to an outside observer but the process is completely different

    Vampires don't shape shift like the T1000 though. They have animal forms. A fat vampire is going to turn into a fat bat.

    The classic documentary Interview With A Vampire showed that they cannot change physically after they've turned, so unless they had abs before the bite, they won't have abs after.

    I recall somewhere they find an adult hybrid, who said he became an adult by age seven.

    Which does not help given the whole werewolf thing

    Vampires have functioning muscles which implies possible muscle growth.

    You have to accept that a vampire, assuming proper feeding, biologically functions similarly as a human. Otherwise vampires would be walking around without skin as their cells in the basal layer of the epidermis would no longer producing keratinocytes to replace the ones that naturally slough off or are lost through wear and tear. Taking this into consideration, if a vampire is regularly using muscles then they could build muscle mass and thus a sick set of abs.

    Without this key fact, we would lose an important part of vampire lore: their supernatural hotness.

    I was gonna say that being undead meant breaking down and rebuilding muscle wouldn’t work the same way so maybe only hybrids could get ripped but it took a small scroll down to realize I had put entirely too much thought into trying to rationalize vampires

    From what I understand from listening to The Court of Cups VTM game, you revert to your regular state every night (including hairstyle) and healing is magic, so that deals with stuff like skin wearing out

    I think I'm going to argue yes.

    Vampires are famous for their uncanny ability to heal, and gaining muscle mass is often considered to be a form of healing.

    Without a source of fresh blood they may be in more trouble, but honestly not becoming ripped is probably the least of their worries there.

    Since building muscle is essentially tearing down your muscle fibers so they grow back bigger I would say vampires not only can get ripped, but they can do it a lot faster.

    But I still voted depends on the type of vampire. I’m pretty sure energy vampires aren’t getting ripped

    Honestly it depends on the kind of vampire but I am firmly in the camp of "no bro you live your immortal unlife as you died"

    This immediately invalidates all sexy vampires born before like 1780 I'm pretty sure but I'm fine with that

    I'm going by World of Darkness rules here, vampirism's a curse from God that's making you stuck exactly the way you were when you got turned. You can use shapeshifting magic to try and alter it, but it's extremely high level stuff that'll require a bunch of m expensive preparations and which could go horribly wrong, and it'll all get undone as soon as you go to sleep the next morning

    Vampire is more an aesthetic than a specific morphology. Vampire lore is fluid across retellings as to exact capabilities, weaknesses and source. Better hope you get bit by the vampires that can get abs vs the vampires that waste away into powerful goblins.

    As an addendum to those that say the vampires can get shredded by working out...if they stop working out but maintain their blood supply, will they stay shredded?
